Too many things broken or not working in the room. TV didn't work, shower drain was stopped up. Told management but they didn't get fixed during our stay. The food was great, but because we their dining room was outside, everything was covered with flies as soon as it was set out. Beds were very hard and uncomfortable. Would not... More

Sitting on the terrace looking out over the medina at breakfast or in the evening was one of the best hotel experiences I've ever had. Khalid and Amina who own the hotel are such lovely accommodating people they make you feel as if you have been invited to their home. It's very relaxed and a wonderful place to recover from... More

We loved this riad. It was cozy and had many wonderful extras. We would come here again and recommend it. It fit perfectly into our tour with Soulfull Travel Adventures. It was a relaxing oasis after a wonderful day exploring.

I think that my title is a fairly accurate base description of this hotel. However, I think that there is a lot of room for improvement here. We arrived at the Riad after almost 10 hours of travel (plane, train and automobile). I had emailed to advise of my arrival time, but evidently there is no one that is keeping... More

The lamb tagine was amazingly tender and delicious. After the lamb, the chicken tagine was not as tasty as it felt overcooked. The 2 Moroccan musicians were friendly and helped along with our birthday celebration even though we couldn't communicate in words. The ambiance was authentic and inviting. Overall a good experience.

As part of our tour of Morocco we booked a two night stay at the Riad Arabesque. Our arrival by car left us wondering what we had gotten ourselves into. The road up the the Riad was unmade and seemed to go through a builder's recycling dump and a small shanty town. (We have since found out that this entrance... More

We came to Riad Arabesque for a dinner as part of our coach tour of Morocco. I have to say it was one of the best meals I had in Morocco because of the food, the ambiance of the setting and the absolute beauty of the Riad itself. We had lamb tagine with sides of eggplant, a tomato jam and... More

I recently had the pleasure to step back in time whilst visiting Fez. Riad Arabesque is a gateway to a world of palaces and pleasures of the good life from times gone by. The location adjacent to the Palais Jamai is without peer, and the views from the terrace give a 360 panorama over one of the most ancient and... More
